Lewis Hamilton would like to enter a race on a MotoGP bike one day, saying that Formula 1 drivers should be able to try out different series following Fernando Alonso's entry to the Indianapolis 500.

McLaren announced on Wednesday that Alonso will miss the Monaco Grand Prix to enter the Indy 500 for the first time, with a joint entry being put together between McLaren, Honda and Andretti Autosport.

The news has been the talk of the paddock in Bahrain, with drivers facing questions in Thursday's press conference about what series and races they would be interested in doing.

"I think it's great that a driver is able to do that," Hamilton said of Alonso's Indy 500 entry. "I think us drivers should be able to do more than one series. There was a period of time in the past where there were drivers doing multiple series. I think it's pretty cool that he's doing it."

While Hamilton would not skip an F1 race like Alonso will in order to enter another race, he said he would like to give MotoGP a go someday.

"I wouldn't miss any of the races in F1, definitely continue to do all the races," Hamilton said.

"I'd like to do MotoGP. I'd like to ride a MotoGP race. Probably a NASCAR race like the Daytona 500 maybe."
